"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Cook the macaroni according to package directions. When done, drain and rinse. Set aside to cool. Dice the eggs. Add the eggs and olives (drained) to the macaroni. Add in the mayonnaise. If it seems too dry, add more mayo, but not too much. Season with the Onion Powder, Celery Salt, and Garlic Powder to taste. Mix in the can of evaporated milk. It will be RUNNY! Add approximately 2/3 cup of sugar, or until its as sweet as you like it! Chill and serve. It will get less runny as it sits.

This was one of Mom's specialties, and everyone loves it....except me!!! I have to make it for every family function, and it makes me laugh because I don't like it! My kids like it really sweet, so they always have to "Taste Test" for me!
